Road to China Light is a heavenly blend of 60% baby alpaca, 20% silk, 10% camel, 10% cashmere. This yarn is unbelievable.
Eight breathtaking colors in Road To China Light from The Fibre Company, one of the newest yarns at Wool & Honey. Remember back in April when we held the contest for one lucky customer to decide on summer inventory at the shop? (If you are not a subscriber to our e-newsletter, you're probably out of the loop, but PM me at spunhoneyfibers AT gmail DOT com and you'll soon be in the know!)
Anyhoo, my sweet friend Michele Greenan was winner of that contest and two extraordinary yarns from The Fibre Co. were her winners--Road To China Light and Canopy Fingering, which I'll introduce tomorrow. (So maybe I pushed her in that general direction. Whoops.)
We'll be featuring both of these yarns in several shop samples, kits and classes in the next few weeks--lots of small projects (and a few big ones, too!) for holiday knitting. (Yeah. It is time to think about it. Sorry.) The hat on the shelf? One skein of RTCL ($16) + Frukttragard pattern ($7.25)=an exquisite Christmas present for under $25. Seriously.
Big plans people!
A huuuuuuuge thank you to Michele--it's even better than I dreamed. Thanks for making this a reality!
I feel like I just moved into Crazy Town. It seems like everything in my life is bonkers right now. Jimble-jambled all around, I'm trying to navigate through a crazy messy office, make crazy shop plans, meet crazy knitting deadlines, deal with a crazy sleeping schedule (welcome back, insomnia!), bomb drive through crazy traffic (o hai Cherry Fest!) and welcome a crazy new career opportunity for Curt (the new athletic director at Leland Public Schools). I've been cooking, canning, boating, stitching, swimming, P90x-ing, front porch lazing, wine-ing, late night strolling and firework gawking.
Just a girl who's trying to pack in as much crazy Northern Michigan awesomeness as she possibly can. (Love you, everlasting Leelanau summer!)
Crazy Zauberball: 462 yds--100 g. Fingering weight. 75% superwash wool, 25% nylon. Meant for socks, but why stop there? This yarn is perfect for crazy baby wear, fingerless mitts, shawlettes...one of the best things about Zauberball is its quirky randomness--no matching socks here!
Next up: Two new yarns with outrageous fiber combinations, including silk, cashmere and camel.
